A new audio phone is integrated into CinemaVision's headset. This enables the technologist to hear the patient distinctly during scans and allows for conversations. Enhanced noise cancellation technology is installed as well.

Patients will also be able to see the faces of attending technologists. In addition, CinemaVision will offer movies and other forms of patient entertainment. Resonance will also debut a 1000 Hz MRI eye-tracker camera along with data analysis software for use with its VisuaStim audiovisual stimulation module.
